Just to set things straight-- we continue to use the same back-end system to run the Forums--only the user interface has changed. That means all your posts, your reputation/karma points and user details persist. The most important and frequently used functions, like reading posts, asking questions, searching, viewing topics and selecting spaces continue to be found in the same place. When in doubt, hover your mouse pointer over something, and a popup will appear to help explain what it is. See below for more details on what has changed.
